The relationship of Facebook friends is a curious one in today's society. Even friends you've never met start to seem familiar to you when you learn, through status updates, how they like their coffee and what they do on Saturday nights. A new Facebook application makes a novel use of all that information. SecondPorch.com has launched a Facebook app called "Rent & Trade Vacation Homes," which helps vacationers and vacation home owners find each other on Facebook. Users can search based on budget, location, amenities, recommendations and through their relationship to the owner. Owners can choose to show their second home for rent only to their network of friends or to members of Facebook at large. Homes can be rented or traded with other homeowners. This app would be great for friends across the country or around the world planning to meet for a vacation somewhere or for planning a family reunion.
